I'm sorry, that was a bit unclear.
I'm developing my component in a Joomla environment, which means that my development files are located in
(for the backend)
There is a file called config.xml which holds all parameters (same as com_easycreator)
There is also a file called mycompname.xml - an install manifest I created by hand, which holds all parameter names and default values, as described http://docs.joomla.org/Component_parameters ( I hope it's the correct URL, seems to be down at the moment)
However, when EasyCreator creates the install manifest file (from scratch, I guess?), it skips all parameters.
Perfect situation would be to parse config.xml in the admin folder, take out all names and default values from it, and put them in the newly created install manifest.xml file
Right now, what I do is this: I create the package, download it, unzip it, edit the install manifest.xml file, add the parameters by hand, re-ZIP it, install it. This works (and sets the parameters in the DB as desired), but is a bit of work which I would love to skip :-)
Hope it's clearer now :-)
Edit: (Edit2: This applies to 0.0.12 - dont know about 0.0.11)
You know how they say "Those who can see are in advance?" :-)
I found it... it's in helper/manifest.php, line 414, change
Kind of obvious, sorry for not noticing earlier.
